    The idle air control valve (IACV) is that big tumor on the back of the intake manifold. It's got 2 nipples for the coolant inlet/outlet, and half of it is black plastic with the plug on the bottom of the black plastic.


    I'm guessing you're saying that when your air conditioning is turned on, your RPM's drop. That's normal, when you turn the compressor on it puts resistance on the crank pulley, and will drop your revs a tad bit. That's nothing to do with your IACV. If the IACV was bad, the car would idle all crazy up and down (like from 500rpm to 1500rpm) regarless of your a/c being on or off.
